Greece and Bulgaria, two neighboring countries with a rich past, since the end of the 1990s have entered an era of closer co-operation, due to the INTERREG Programme “Greece-Bulgaria”.

The main idea behind “INTERREG” is that countries have issues which can be better solved if they work together with their neighbors than if each one remains confined within its borders.

Co-funded Projects enable the EU to demonstrate in a practical way how the EU impacts on the everyday lives of citizens. Within this framework the Interreg V-A “Greece-Bulgaria 2014-2020” Cooperation Programme’s budget across the European Union amounts to € 129.695.572,00 million (total funding) for the Programming Period 2014-2020.
